How does it look in the stock?

I understand they just taper them down from the shank to the muzzle, im worried about stock inlet

Sounds great, ordered a .338 a month ago, and I like their options, 1.350" shank, 9 twist, 29", 3/4x28 muzzle threading, magnum contour, and they give a LE/MIL discount as well. All these custom/extra options, and still well under $700.

Reviving an old post.....
I ordered a 6mm Featherweight barrel (22") for a 6Creed build. Hope it's a good barrel

Ordered an 18” 6mm barrel last night. They had a 10% off Black Friday special going and I paid 580 bucks for the barrel. Eager to try her out!

Just got mine put together and broken in.
17.5” 1:8 twist carbonsix magnum contour chambered by Straightjacket Armory. It shot the factory 105 hornady black, 108 eld m and 87 gr vmax extremely well. Smallest groups were 1 hole and largest were just over 1/2 minute. 108 and 105 had exact same poi and shot inside the same group. 87 vmax printed .5” higher. Super happy with the barrel and would buy again. It broke in very quick (10-12 rounds) and cleans up super easy.
Build info:
6mm Creedmoor
-Manners mcs-cs elite with gen 2 mini chassis
-Triggertech special, flat shoe
-Bighorn origin action with bolt handle on the correct side :)
-Leupold vx5 hd 3-15x44 windex
-ARC m-10 low rings
-Rifle weighs 10.5 lbs all up with a loaded 5 round mag and bipod attaches. Will weigh 11.5 with can if it ever gets out of jail ~350 days now....

I’m very excited to get mine finished, I had to order a new stock so waiting for that and my smith said he’s hoping to get to it soon.
It will be 24” featherweight contour in 6mm creed. It was supposed to be 22” but idk if there was miss communication between me and the smith or the smith and CarbonSix when ordering... oh well, not the end of the world, just gonna be slightly longer with the can on.

Some update.
I shot mine with some factory Hornady Precision 103 ELD-X. Was grouping anywhere from under .5moa-1moa. I don't plan on using factory ammo, just haven't had an opportunity to do any load development yet.
